Protein Interaction is a Drug Target for Blood Clot Prevention

...hological bleeding, which can often occur when the clotting process is disrupted. The results suggest that modulation of the interaction between talin and alpha-IIb beta 3 could be an attractive strategy for the development of future anti-thrombotic drugs, with a reduced risk of pathological bleeding....

Anticoagulants is Better for Atrial Fibrillation

...y used options are anticoagulants that inhibit the clotting process (e.g. warfarin), and drugs such as aspirin that make blood platelets less likely to bind together and trigger a clot. In standard medical practice, anticoagulants are often given to people with AF who are at high risk of strokes, while anti-...

Thrombosis Risk in Travel Lasting Over Four Hours is Higher: WHO

...and inherited blood disorders leading to increased clotting tendency. Dr Catherine Le Gals-Camus, WHO Assistant Director-General for Non-communicable Disease and Mental Health said that this study did not investigate effective preventive measures against DVT and VTE. Experts said that blood circulation c...

First Ultrasound Thrombolysis in U.S. Performed at Emory University Hospital

...y School of Medicine, to relieve a major system of clotting that filled the veins of the patient's leg, pelvis and inferior vena cava leading up to the heart. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot in a deep vein, usually found in the legs. These clots can, in turn, form in superficial veins in deep vei...

Research Favors Aspirin In Prevention Of Pre-Eclampsia

.... This is can to lead to activation of platelets - clotting agents in the blood - and an imbalance between the hormones, which promote and slow blood flow. Says Askie: "Our data show that antiplatelet agents produce moderate but consistent reductions in pre-eclampsia and its consequences. This information s...

Nervous Systems of Insects may Offer Clues on Neurodegenerative Diseases

...proteins that can be used therapeutically, such as clotting factors. When I first became involved in this project, the objective was a bio-engineering one, said Palter, a geneticist. We wanted to produce an insect cell line that basically could produce the exact glycosylation pattern that would occur in hum...

New Study Reinforces Aspirins Effectiveness Against Heart Disease

Low-dose Aspirin Beats High-dose After Cardiac Surgery

.... Aspirin (ASA) acts as a blood thinner to prevent clotting complications, but high levels can cause potentially serious bleeding. While PCI trials have traditionally used high-dose ASA (more than 200 mg) in combination with other medicines to prevent thrombosis and ischemic events, a sub-analysis from a clin...

The significant demand for high quality platelets, coupled with their s...

Diabetes Risk Factors Develop Earlier in Women Than Men

...function, chronic sub-acute inflammation and blood clotting factors, are present early on in women who eventually progress from normal glucose status to the pre-diabetic condition. Pre-diabetes is diagnosed when blood sugar levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to indicate full-blown diabetes. ...

Surgeons Develop Simpler Way to Cure Atrial Fibrillation

...control the abnormal heart rhythms and the risk of clotting associated with atrial fibrillation, but unlike the Cox-maze procedure, the drugs do not cure the disorder. Damiano says their most recent study of Cox-maze IV is unique because the surgeons carefully matched the age, sex and cardiac conditions of ...
